HOW EACH COLUMN HELPS YOU WITH YOUR RESEARCH:

1. POPULATED PLACE column: names the "populated place" or "location" of interest.

2. FORMER NAME, if applicable column: if the location was known by another name, it is listed here (a year of name change is given, if known).

3. TYPE column: gives type of location (i.e. village, town, city, etc.) - the size definition varies per province.

4. FHL CATALOG column: links the "catagories of sources" available in the Family History Library for this populated place or location.

5. WIKIPEDIA column: like WIKI, gives background information regarding this location.

6. GOOGLE MAPS column: shows the whereabouts of this location on a map.

7. GOOGLE IMAGES column: shows pictures/photos/old maps (sometimes) of this location.

8. WORLDCAT.ORG column: shows sources from other libraries/repositories, etc. for this location.

9. CURRENT DIVISION LINK, where applicable column: helps in knowing the current changes of this location's jurisidiction - see "Note" below.
